Make it Earth Day, Every Day

Posted by Elizabeth Williams on

Let me first acknowledge the fact, that the best thing we can all do for the Earth (and our wallets) is to buy less stuff. Hopefully this sentence goes without saying.
However, I truly believe that "shopping small" can make a big impact when it comes to sustainability, and when combined with eco-conscious brands this small impact is amplified.
As a small business owner, one of my greatest pleasures has been found in meeting numerous small business owners that (like myself) aim to do their business in a more sustainable way. 
This month, in honor of Earth Day, I wanted to share a few of small business owners who are doing things better, so that the next time you do need/ want to make a purchase, you know that you have options that align with your values.
